Caregiver Screening through a Home Health Agency
Caregiver Screening and Training Process
Nightingale Private Care is a drug-free workplace and as such, performs random drug testing on all employees. Work authorization checks are performed along with driver's license verification. Due to the expense incurred by this testing, drug testing is not a requirement with most companies. Before you hire a company, make sure to ask if they are a drug free workplace. Our background screening not only requires Level II fingerprinting but also includes detailed criminal background checks nationwide. All of our employees are bonded and insured.
We Train Quality Caregivers to Exceed Your Expectations at Home
Every caregiver is authorized to perform their duties either by classroom instruction with diploma, certification, or professional licensing by the state of Florida, depending on their position. Credentials are verified accordingly by Nightingale's personnel staff. Additional training is provided in-house by Registered Nurses if necessary for updates to the skills required. All caregivers are required to complete CPR certification and the Alzheimer's training required by the Agency for Health Care Administration. All new employees receive physicals.
Qualifying a Caregiver to Meet Your Home Care Needs is Important to Us
Nightingale Private Care exceeds the state requirements followed by other agencies and rises to the level expected by its' national accreditation status to provide the type of trusted and well-trained caregivers you expect and deserve when caring for your family. Nightingale Private Care is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care.
